WHY GOOD MEN OF GOD CANNOT PASTOR TO DAYíS CHURCHES
Pastor E G. Ramsey, DD
Jeremiah 5:31: "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof."
Ezekiel 22:23-31: "And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation.
There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.
And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken.
The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully.
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.
Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD."
When I was a boy, the preacher was the messenger of God. He represented the one and only true God of the Bible and all others were false idols. We vaguely heard of Hindus and Muslims. We heard about Jews but knew nothing of their beliefs. We were taught that God did not intend for His people to mingle with the world or other races and other people of other gods.
Back then the preacher could wax bold on sin, hell, punishment and Godís position on sodomy, adultery, divorce, and illegitimate sex and all other sins and perversions. He would be commended, clapped and praised.
Not so today. Many pastors and preachers think they are doing a great job. They preach on salvation, prayers, the resurrection, and many other truths of the Word. But the areas they dare not tread in are the areas of diversity and multiculturalism racially or religiously. No preacher will preach a sermon against sodomy and call for the members to take action in their community to clean up the schools that teach it, clean up the television programs, movies and videos that promote it.
No preacher will preach against race mixing and call on their members to take action to prevent it in their community, schools, churches and their own families.
Most preachers will not preach against abortion, genetic cloning or the liquor trade. They wonít tackle the dirty filthy movie industry, the free sex education in the schools or a host of other evils.
The big question is, Why not?
It is because the membership of the churches are not willing to be seen as controversial, confrontational, unloving or for Jesus Christ only. They know that the powers that, be including the press, will call them hate mongers, racists, bigots and many other untruthful names. But the point is that pastors cannot preach the whole truth and keep their job.
Thousands of pastors are leaving the ministry today. There are thousands of churches looking for pastors, but canít find one because their criteria are wrong. They want a socialist multicultural, pro diversity man who will preach only a loving Jesus and recognize everyone elseís view as valid.
No real preacher of Jesus Christ and the Bible can fill this bill. Only those who are willing to compromise their faith or they are outright phonies.
As God said through Jeremiah, the preachers preach falsely and the people love to have it so.
God said: "... my pastors have violated my law and they refuse to teach the people the difference between the holy and the profane."
That is because the people will not tolerate it, the government will not tolerate it and the Christians have no intention of being shamed with persecution before their neighbours.
Yes, there is a small band of true Christians and preachers in America today. But they meet like the early Christians. They meet in secret places. They keep moving their meetings so the enemy cannot find them.
They are forced off the airwaves except remote short wave or mini watt stations that reach only a few. The postal service refuses them certain discount privileges given to the vilest non-profit organizations.
God said that: "... He looked for a man to stand in the gap and stand up for Him as a hedge against His judgment. But there was none."
Well there are several today and they are doing all that God and Godís people will allow. But that is very limited.
I have been asked to try out for several churches over the past year. I have not even touched on multiculturalism, divorce, diversity or any of the so-called hot subjects. I simply preached against adultery, sex education, government schools, idol worship in America and a few other subjects of sin; and even that was too strong. I was asked not to come back or I was not contacted for follow up services.
It is evident that Godís people for the most part are happy to co-exist with sin and idolatry. They refuse to allow Godís preachers to preach the truth. Just as Jeremiah and other great prophets of old were jailed and killed, so are they in America today.
But God will have the last say in America as He did in Palestine of old. God will allow the very thing modem day Christians call love and tolerance to destroy many. And except for the direct intervention of God all of us would perish.
Since we are the elect of God, the children of the Old Covenant people, God has promised to deliver us after we have been thoroughly chastised for our sins of covenant breaking and tolerance of multiculturalism in religion and race.
Diversity within Christianity deserves our tolerance. Diversity of other gods will destroy us. And it is the fact that other gods are attached to the other races that condemns us for the tolerance of multiculturalism.
Other races forced to the God of the Bible or no god at all is Godís program. The program we have today is the religion of Babylon created by Cain the cursed seed of the garden of Eden and carried down through the ages by his descendants.
God has never said that we could eliminate these false religions from earth or convert the idolatrous nations to our God Jesus Christ. But what God has commanded us to do is to apply the simple rules of separation of races and religions to our borders, our culture and our nation.
Ezekiel 33:7-8: "So thou, 0 son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
When I say unto the wicked, 0 wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand."
The New Covenant Messenger (Kentucky)
